There are plenty of people selling their crafts on Etsy and making a living while doing it. I use to make a lot of money selling crafts on Etsy. I made so much money that I didn't have to have a regular job.
How do you make money selling on Etsy?
You post up a lot of items every day that you are able to. No one can expect to earn a living if they only have a few things to sell. When I first started off on Etsy, back in the day when I was doing wonders on that site, I had over 200 items for sell on Etsy. I would sell at least $75 a day on there. I sold so many products that the government would have thought I was running a child sweatshop if they would have walked into my garage since I had to persuade the kiddos to give me a hand.
What happens when you walk away from a good thing going?
I stopped listing items on Etsy and stopped renewing items because I had been going through some personal things and just didn't have the time for it. Eventually I lost all of my customers and because I stopped restocking my products, soon the money that I had had to restock items was gone. Gone went the good ole days of me not having to work a real job.
Selling on Etsy again
I started my Etsy shop back up and have been slowly increasing my productivity and adding items when I can. I am now at a real job but eventually plan to be able to strictly run my shop from home once again like I use to.
So, the question again, can you make a living selling crafts on Etsy?
Yes you can and I and many others are living proof of this. It just takes some time and effort. With a little bit of practice to see what sells and what doesn't you should be able to make a good little, or big, income selling your crafts on Etsy like I use to and like I am trying to do now.
